Book: Swendson intro to statistical mechanics and thermodynamics

  1. May 20, 2012 #1

    i study statistical mechanics from this book at the moment and i'm a little bit confused somtimes. i thougt if anybody else is using this book, we could discuss and clarify confusions (or errata) here. please let me know if anyone is out there...

    for example. the result regarding the classical ideal gas does not agree with the literature (but i find this confusing anyway since i saw at least three different results: greiner, huang, swendsen). also equation 6.20 does not agree with 7.1, but 7.1 in turn agrees with greiner...confusion...
